Maybelline Red Rays sports the color combination of white and red. The lipstick comes in transparent plastic wrapping on which the product details are mentioned. Overall, the lipstick looks appealing and seductive.
Smell: Beautiful fruity fragrance which is pleasant. Though it lasts only for few minutes.
How To Use?
I apply the lipstick in the centre first and then move to the sides of lips until the edges. It is a buildable shade. You can go for multiple coats for a bold red. The fruity fragrance is very refreshing and nice to work with. After applying Maybelline Red Rays, it does not smudge or bleeds and stays for good duration.
My Experience: I opened the plastic wrapping and pull out the white cap. The product has twist open mechanism, so I twisted the transparent case. Let’s talk about the performance based on the following factors:
Shade: Red Rays is a beautiful and subtle red shade. I had to swipe two to three times to get the bold sexy look.
For those who want light red color, one swipe is enough for them. Red Rays goes well with everything. It’s ideal for long parties and weddings!
Texture: Maybelline Red Rays has creamy and smooth texture which glides easily on to the lips. It settles providing a matte finish.
Transfer Proof: Maybelline 14 hour Superstay does not transfer on objects and keeps settled for hours.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is very mild so my lip lines are visible. This lipstick has light pigmentation and covers minimal lip lines.
Long Lasting: Maybelline Superstay 14H Megawatt feels very light but sticks to lips, hence making it long lasting. My lip remains moisturized up to 8 hours straight but after that my lips dried, so reapplication is must.
After 10 hours, there is a red tint. It doesn’t last up to 14 hours as per their claim. But personally for me, it’s not a good idea to have lipstick which stays for more than 8 hours. So. I’m satisfied with the lasting capability it provides!

Will I repurchase?
I love the build-able deep red color but I usually stay away from long lasting lipsticks. So, no repurchase for me but I would love to try red shades from other brands.
Do I recommend?
It’s a go to product for all the beauties who love bold reds and need long lasting lipstick!
Overall Summary: Maybelline Red Rays is a must have in makeup because of its unique, electrifying and gorgeous red color.
Personally, I can’t wear long lasting lipsticks. For those who love matte finish and long lasting, it is a beauty at its best.
